Peter Gunn - An Individual 'Season 1' Set is Scheduled by Timeless


4-disc set with 38 episodes will be in stores this March

    Before Miami Vice, before Law and Order, the coolest and most sophisticated TV detective was definitely Peter Gunn, created and produced by Blake Edwards (The Pink Panther, SOB).

    Set in a nameless waterfront city, the series features stylish film noir cinematography and a stylish musical score written by Henry Mancini, whose The Peter Gunn Theme earned him two Grammy® Awards as well as a Primetime Emmy® Award Nomination. In fact, Peter Gunn was the first TV show featuring modern jazz for a soundtrack. Edwards himself directed many episodes, as did an impressive roster of Hollywood s best TV directors, including Robert Altman.

    Craig Stevens plays Gunn, Pete to his friends, a handsome, suave detective tough enough to take on the hardest of hard cases, but has a soft touch when it comes to the ladies. His girlfriend, the gorgeous singer Edie Hart (Lola Albright) is the featured singer at Mothers , a smoke-filled jazz club used by Gunn as his unofficial office. Other regulars at the club include a colorful cast of musicians, pool hustlers, artists and a sculptor. His standard fee is $1,000.00, and his reputation keeps the customers lined up for his services, sometimes referred by Mother (Hope Emerson), or his police buddy Lt. Jacoby (Herschel Bernardi). A man with expensive tastes, Peter Gunn drives a stylish two-tone Plymouth Fury Convertible, equipped with a mobile phone!

    So settle into your favorite easy chair, dim the lights, and enjoy this classic series, one of the best TV detective shows ever!
Already available as part of a Complete Series set which came out two months ago, Timeless Media Group is now planning to break out an individual 4-DVD set of Peter Gunn - Season 1. Priced at $29.93 SRP, this will be in stores on March 5th. Here's a look at the package art:
